When Comfortable
In a comfortable barnyard setting where all the animals know who is boss, the cocky Rooster will usually be forthright, brave, enthusiastic, loyal, hardworking, tenacious, resilient, adventurous, meticulous, prompt, astute, well-dressed, proficient, down-to-earth, gregarious, communicative, sensible, generous, charming, ebullient and terminally witty.


Bad Days
But on bad days, when everyone ignores his presence, nobody cares a whit for his genius or seeks his favor, the Rooster grows cranky, fussy, vain, self-involved, blindly egotistical, over-zealous, pretentious, materialistic, grabby, high-handed, cynical, mercurial, self-absorbed and persnickety.
